> definitely take your meds in the AM. That gives them a chance to work on you all day, hence the XR which is extended release, right?! I take mine in the morning but I do find that I could nap everyday around 5 to 6 hours after taking it. I have to really fight to stay busy. Seen a "mental health nurse". He suggested that I get my GP to also prescribe Wellbutrin to take in the evenings. He also suggested that I consider Prozac and talk to GP about it. Going to also request a referral to a psychiatrist.

I took 2x150mg in the morning and 2x150mg in the evening. Plus, 1-150mg Wellbutrin 2x a day. The first day that I started taking Effexor XR my appetite went from 60 to 0 in 3 hrs. I stopped caring if I ate at all, and sometimes I wouldn't eat for more than 24 hours without it bothering me in the least. I had to be put on Trazadone, it keeps you asleep (if you can fall asleep), and I had some Valium which my phsychiatrist told me to take right before bed. Some times I was so revved up, even though I took the Trazadone, that I'd be awake for close to 48hrs or more and not feel grouchy or tired. You are right though, I lost a lot of weight. Not eating definitely helped me shed pounds. I went from weighing around 198lbs to 137lbs in 10 months. I was NOT, I repeat NOT, exercising or on a proper diet. This drug is not safe for many people. Be careful taking it. Speak to your Pharmacists, they can help.
